Is there a difference between the Discord Desktop app and the Discord app in Shift?

Shift currently supports the web version of the Discord application. The web and desktop versions of Discord have a lot of features in common. However, the experience does differ with some features. The Push to Talk feature is limited in the web version. It will only work when the Discord app has focus in Shift.
